Yes - my battery supplier confirms those sizes however, they quote 590CCA and 63AH. The battery code is 027

The OP has a TD Xantia according to his profile so I'd have thought 590CCA and 63AH was correct for diesel engine and heavy current glow plugs.

The battery spec for the 2.0i Petrol engine wouldn't be so meaty.
